Getting Around In Madrid

An experienced pilgrim who has all the answers concerning transport in Madrid has posted this information and I am shamelessly stealing it because it is of great value to the pilgrim.  Thank you Whariwharangi!

"Shared wisdom ... there is no way you will make it from flight arrival to train departure in the time specified.

Si yo fuera tu ... plan to take a later train."

Here is information for your time appreciation:

Getting around in Madrid
